The Czech Biomass Association (CZ Biom) is the Czech Republic’s largest professional organisation engaged in the issue of utilization of biodegradable waste and using biomass in all its forms as an energy source.  Established in 1994, the association currently represents approximately 200 companies and members. Czech Biomass Association is a full member of AEBIOM.
